Refund and Return Policy
Payment and Purchases Policy:
1st Choice GPS provides its services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at 1stChoiceGPS.com, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully.
Sale prices shown on 1stChoiceGPS.com are in U.S. Dollars (USD). The current billing address and phone information must be included with every order.
We accept credit cards: American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover, cashier’s checks, bank checks, company checks, money orders, and international wire transfers as acceptable modes of payment. In all cases, the product might not be shipped until the funds have cleared.
Credit Card Orders:
1st Choice GPS reserves the right to request additional evidence for proof of billing information. For your protection, credit card orders may be delayed while we confirm your billing information.
Please be aware that once we receive credit card authorization, the funds may be reserved for up to 30 days depending on the bank (please check the policy of your lending institution). If you are paying with a Debit Card, make sure you are aware of the limitations on daily withdrawals (if any) of your card.
Depending on the product and the circumstances of the sale, we reserve the right to bill it prior to shipment (i.e. an expiring credit card). Once your card has been charged, you will receive an invoice for your order. This invoice should not be confused with the order receipt or order acceptance acknowledgment – these are automatic and are sent by our system prior to invoicing.
Other Modes Of Payment:
Cashier’s checks, bank checks, company checks, money orders, and international wire transfers are also acceptable forms of payment. These should be sent, along with a print out of your order, to:
1st Choice GPS | 1000 Cooper Cir S, Suite #210 | Peachtree City, GA 30269
For Domestic & International Wire Transfers, 1st Choice GPS holds the right to withhold goods at our discretion or, advisement of Bank until the funds have cleared and are considered in good sted or holding.
For Cashier’s check and money order payments, 1st Choice GPS usually releases orders immediately on receipt of the payment document.
For bank and company checks, orders will ship only after funds are released from your financial institution to 1st Choice GPS. This could take up to 10 business days after receipt of payment by 1st Choice GPS. All checks returned unpaid will be subject to an $50.00 returned check fee.
On orders being paid for by means other than credit card, availability of the product might change while your payment is in transit or funds are being cleared. 1st Choice GPS cannot reserve or guarantee continued availability.
Shipping To An Address Different From Your Billing Address:
To protect our customers from credit card fraud, we mandate that the shipping address match the billing address to which your monthly credit card statement is mailed. If the addresses are different, please contact your credit card company to add the alternate shipping address as an authorized secondary address. Your credit card company’s phone number can be found on the back of your credit card.
We do not ship to an unverified shipping address as per instructions of the credit card company. This is for your protection and to help maintain a safe online shopping experience.
Persons who commit fraudulent activity will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Both the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service are responsible for investigating Internet Fraud Cases. Fraudulent information will be provided to the issuing bank, shipping carriers and networked with our business partners.
1stChoiceGPS.com orders are shipped “Signature Required.” If you cannot be at the shipping location to sign for your package, please contact UPS or USPS directly with your tracking number to request that the carrier hold the item at your local facility and you can go to pick up your package at your earliest convenience. 1st Choice GPS is not responsible for any item returned due to no signer, lack of claim, collection, receipt, payment or any other reason there too.
Pricing and Availability Policy:
Since all of our suppliers reserve their right to alter their prices, our pricing and availability are subject to change without notice. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information listed. However, 1stChoiceGPS.com does not assume any responsibility for any errors contained therein nor from orders arising from those errors. We reserve the right to cancel any orders received without having to assign a reason to do so.
Our prices change often due to supply, demand, specials, and other uncontrollable factors. 1st Choice GPS does not offer price protection. If you place an order and the price is lowered on our website at a later date, we are not obligated to refund the difference.
Please understand that the receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order; it confirms that our system has received your order. Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order.
We reserve the right to correct any rare pricing errors or other errors on our Web site, to limit the order quantity for any item, and to refuse service to any customer.
In the event that our Bank, due to insufficient funds or any other reason, returns a check from a customer, it will incur in an automatic $50.00 returned check fee. Additionally, the check amount will be subject to a 29% interest rate per year, or the highest interest rate permissible by law.
Unjustified Credit Card Chargebacks:
A chargeback is when a cardholder disputes a charge made on his or her card. If the cardholder did not authorize the purchase, we will work with you to ensure the situation is resolved to your satisfaction.
Please READ IN FULL and acknowledge our Terms of Service prior to activating your device/s. Our system does not allow our clients to activate their device/s until they have complied with this policy. We do this to confirm that both parties understand the terms and expectations before entering into a business agreement. If, after reviewing our terms, you activate your device/s, you are consenting to abide by our Terms of Service. We make every attempt to be fair and reasonable in our interactions.
In accordance with this, we will charge a $75.00 penalty fee for every unjustified credit card chargeback attempt against our company. We will also report all unjustified chargebacks to ChargeBackProtection.org, thereby banning you from placing orders with any business that uses ChargeBackProtection.org.
Examples of unjustified chargebacks are: a customer issues an unjustified complaint, a customer starts an unwarranted dispute with his or her credit card company, a customer refuses to pay, a customer ships the product without going through the RMA process and starts a dispute, a customer disregards our return policy, etc.
**Please note that EACH unjustified chargeback will be individually itemized and subject to an $75.00 penalty. 4 unjustified chargebacks = $300.00 in penalty fees. If there is difficulty in recovering the amount due, your account WILL BE SENT TO COLLECTIONS. NO EXCEPTIONS.**
We make our best effort to ship your order as soon as possible. If you need to cancel an order, you must contact us by phone or e-mail within 2 hours of placing the order. If your order has already been packed and shipped, it cannot be canceled. Cancellations cost us time and processing expenses, therefore we have an $50.00 cancellation fee to cover the time and fees we incurred. If your product has shipped and you refuse delivery, you will be held responsible for the cost of shipping in both directions in addition to the cancellation fee. To cancel monthly fees on GPS tracking service, we must have the request in by the 25th of the month in writing or email to avoid being charged again on the 28th of the month for the following month of service.
